North Arkansas RV Camping Guide

North Arkansas RV Camping Guide
When you think of Arkansas, your mind doesn't go immediately to incredible outdoor scenery and memorable adventures. But it all depends on what part of Arkansas you're talking about--up in the northern part of the state there happens to be an area of hills called the Ozark Mountains. The Ozarks take up about two-thirds of northern Arkansas, and its deep river valleys, lakes and wilderness areas are some of the finest in the world. Take your home on wheels to one of several fine RV parks in that region of the state.

Golden Pond RV Resort

Situated in the Ozarks by Greers Ferry Lake to the north of Heber Springs, Golden Pond RV Resort offers the amenities of a lake vacation all from the comfort of your RV. Explore the lake itself by stepping down to the marina. There's a fitness center just in case you don't feel like getting all your exercise outdoors. There are several swimming pools, a tennis center, minature golf and bowling on-site. Plus, there's an impressive lake environment where you can go fishing for bass and panfish. As of September 2009, rates for a full hook up site ran $24 per day.

Dogwood Springs Jasper Resort

Dogwood Springs is a AAA recommended RV/camping resort in the heart of the Ozarks. They are the closest full-service camping facility in regards to Buffalo National River Park and the Little Buffalo River. They have a pool with a slide for the children and their sites can accommodate both individual campers and large groups. The resort is centrally located so that canoeing, hiking and horseback riding are all within a few miles. Wildlife viewing from the campground is another perk of the location, while a camp store can help set you up with any of the little necessities such as firewood for your fire pit. Daily site rates as of September 2009 were $22.50 for a standard site and $26.50 for a pull-through.
